Touring Tombstone's Sights and the Audie Murphy/Medal of Honor Museum

 Today I drove into Tombstone to take a look at this tourist town in Arizona.There's basically a main street lined with period looking building facades, all basically hawking the theme: The town that was too tough to die.  Obviously, the big wild west names and events such as "Shootout at the O.K. Corral", Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and their portrayal in movies create the context and imagery that draws one to this town's sights.Yes, it's a bit of a tourist trap, but I liked it.  Perhaps it was th...

2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo: Powerful Turbo S Variant, New Gravel Mode & More

If you want your daily driver to look like an SUV, sedan, elongated coupe, and a wagon all at once, then look no further than the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. Regardless of what you call it, don’t call the Taycan Cross Turismo late to dinner. And while that expression is often used colloquially, we might opt for it in the literal sense here. The Taycan Cross Turismo will never be late to anything because it is (in the words of my colleague Tony Borroz) fast with a capital F! There are four ...

Another One: FedEx Vows to Become Carbon Neutral by 2040

FedEx had kneeled before mankind, vowing to become a carbon-neutral business by 2040. That’s roughly eight years longer than it’ll probably take most of the population to forget that the promise was ever made. But this is the way of the world and we wager it won’t be long before it’s just easier to list […] The post Another One: FedEx Vows to Become Carbon Neutral by 2040 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Kia Sorento SX First Drive – Competent Crossover Seeking Spark

Kia’s slogan of the moment is “give it everything.” Problem is, the brand only gave the 2021 most of the things, not everything. The result is a solid crossover choice that doesn’t feel quite as well finished as the company’s larger Telluride or its K5 mid-size sedan. I was loaned a Sorento for a very […] The post 2021 Kia Sorento SX First Drive – Competent Crossover Seeking Spark appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Montana Legalizes Lane-Splitting

Straight Down The Middle: Montana Edition Lane splitting? Lane filtering? Where ever you are in the world, lane filtering can speed up your commute by a hefty sum. Although it can be dangerous when lane splitting when its not legal (drivers haven’t become normalized to it and aren’t expecting it), it can make a huge difference when it’s written directly into the laws of the roadways. Although I wouldn’t say Montana is an urban playground, they still have taken a look into the benefits of lane f...
